Lest I give the wrong impression, it was NOT the hotel that was noisy, far from it, but the constant roaring and shouting from the street below that went on until way past 4am. Esperance has a very central location on a small side street between Eglise Notre Dame du Finistère on rue Neuve and one of the main avenues... More

If you walk slowly, it's ten minutes from Grande Place. It is 30 seconds from Rue Neuve, the main shopping street in Brussels. We didn't spend much time in the room, but it was modern, quite big, had no less than four (!) French balconies towards Rue du Finistre and an eccentrically designed bathroom. I still don't know why the... More

The staff was helpful, the room was big, clean, modern, with a nice bathroom and shower with good water pressure. No elevator, but the clerk carried up my bag. Tiny little tavern on first floor with decent wine, good beer list, art deco furnishings. Very happy with my stay. Street is noisy till 9 pm, then very quiet.

I have just returned from a short visit to Brussels and a stay in Hotel Esperance. The location is perfect: in the heart of the city but down a quiet side street. The staff were friendly and helpful: we checked in early, they gave us a map of the city, and stored our bags the next day. The room was... More

We had drinks in the lovely understated Art Déco Taverne Winebar attached to the hotel. It was an oasis of calm and civilisation at a very reasonable price. Just the place for a first date (or an illicit liaison).

I stayed here for my first trip to Brussels. It was in a perfect location for a solo traveler to easily get around. Lots of shops and places to eat in under 5 minute walk. Short walk to all of central attractions. I stayed in #3 the Art Deco room which was beautiful. I asked to switch rooms on the... More

First, I love this hotel, the staff and the location. We arrived with heavy luggage and the manager had pity on us and worked out giving us first floor rooms. The rooms are not all alike and are very quirky. I do not want to reveal the huge and different surprise that awaits the occupants of room 1 or 2.... More

I can't praise this hotel enough! We arrived at 12 and the staff let us check into our room even though we were 3 hours early. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room we stayed in(red room) was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you hotel Esperance you made our stay in... More

I got back from a two night stay in Brussels yesterday and we loved it, the hotel was lovely, the rooms were very nice with modern twist that looks even better in the flesh than the photos.
